Art Galleries and Museums
You will find a large variety of art galleries in the area sure to please the most discerning collector or novice alike as well as interesting exhibits in our local museums celebrating our maritime heritage and local artists.
For art enthusiasts, there are many annual events--some nationally renowned--to enjoy. From the Waterfowl Festival in November to Plein Air in July and some new smaller festivals such as the Sea Glass Festival held in April, artisans will appreciate these showcase events as they take time to visit local galleries and museums as well.
Typically held the second weekend in November, this is the Eastern Shore`s signature event. This family-friendly weekend includes a variety of activities from art collections, decoy carvings, goose calling contests, wine and food and retriever demonstrations.
